The tour starts with the pick up of the tourist from the door of his hotel in the city of Cusco.
The town of Maras will be our first point of visit, which was of great importance during the Viceroyalty, declared Villa de San Francisco de Asis (it was the main salt supplier of the southern highlands), as evidenced by the church and the mansions that still retain the coats of arms of indigenous nobility on their facades.
Las Salineras de Maras our second point of visit belongs to the town of Maras, which was of great importance during the Viceroyalty, was the main supplier of salt in the southern highlands, as evidenced by the church and the houses that still retain the coats of arms of indigenous nobility on their facades.
The salt mines of Maras surprise the visitor with more than three thousand wells that are still being worked by more than 360 families, who have inherited this custom and artisanal extractive work; the commercialization of the salt is in charge of the Maras Sal association, in charge of looking after the interests of the community since the end of the 80s.
Our tour ends visiting the circular terraces of Moray, which are a sample of how the Andean man defied nature and took advantage of their geographical environment to use it for their benefit, these circular terraces served as an agricultural laboratory that allowed to obtain a variety of species of potatoes, corn, among other products. Return to Cuzco.
End of service.


The Incas built thousands of terraces for the cultivation of various products such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, quinoa and more. Perhaps the most beautiful of all was Moray, a circular system of terraces that survives to this day. Nearby, there are some natural salt wells formed thousands of years ago. This place is called the salt pans of Maras and, together with Moray, are two of the most popular tourist attractions in Cusco.
